Release on Bail for Drug Trafficking


Updated on:


After the initial shock, of seeing how the Investigating Judge agrees to the provisional detention of our family member for the commission of a crime against public health, the work of the lawyer specializing in drug trafficking crime begins, (according to what we are told JAVIER and MANUEL RINCON BERNAL, directors of RINBER CRIMINAL LAWYERS), in taking a QUALITY LEAP and obtaining bail for drug trafficking. 

It is there where the expertise and good work of the expert lawyers in provisional releases, (JAVIER and MANUEL RINCÓN BERNAL, directors of RINBER ABOGADOS PENALISTAS insist). 


JAVIER and MANUEL RINCÓN BERNAL, directors of RINBER ABOGADOS PENALISTAS, commented on matters such as: “Release on bail of €2,000 for those detained with 1,536 kilos of hashish”. The secret of getting headlines like this is to study each specific case, individually, and try to lead the judge to the conviction that it is more harmful to clients, to enter prison, than to keep them free, on reasonable bail. . These lawyers are famous for securing bail bail all over the country. They are criminal lawyers, specialized in these types of issues. 

It is not about filling out a form (as many do) and waiting for the lottery to win, affirm JAVIER and MANUEL RINCÓN, it is about convincing the judge that the prison solution is not the most recommendable, nor the best.

What are the crimes that reach bail?

All crimes that carry a custodial sentence may be subject to bail. Any criminal action that entails a possible imprisonment is likely to be avoided that imprisonment by depositing a bond set by the examining magistrate in the case. 

What is bail?

Bail is a legal prerogative, based on which, the investigating judge, despite having sufficient evidence to provisionally deprive a person of liberty, allows them to remain free by delivering a certain amount of money, as a guarantee of its disposition before the court. 

How much is paid for a bond?

The amount of the bond is set by the Investigating Judge of the case. The greater or lesser amount that is set as bail is determined by the examining judge. It is important to say that the amount can be appealed before the provincial court, when it is considered very high. 

When can you get out on bail?

From the moment the Investigating Judge establishes the amount subject to bail, by means of a judicial decision, the person investigated can make that amount of money available to the court, by means of a deposit or bank transfer to the consignment account of the Court. Once the above has been carried out, and it is brought to the attention of the court, the judge sends the appropriate orders to prison so that the prisoner can be released. 

What can I do if I don't have all the money to post a bond?

There are two options if you do not have all the money set by the Judge as bail. Or you can resort to the provincial court, in the city where it corresponds, arguing that maintaining that amount of bail is as much as not granting it, or trying to provide another type of guarantee, such as a bank guarantee. 


What happens after you get out on bail?

After leaving on bail, the provisional release. Provisional freedom that will be extended until the main lawsuit is resolved, either under definitive freedom, due to an acquittal, or because the sentence does not exceed two years of imprisonment, and therefore is susceptible to suspension , or in the worst case, by a firm conviction, for a period of more than two years, which makes admission to jail unavoidable. 

Where does the bail money go?

The bail money is deposited in what is called the Court's consignment account. Each Court has an official bank account, normally at Banco Santander, where all the economic movements of the Court are deposited. 

How long do I have to pay a bond?

From the moment the examining magistrate agrees to set a certain amount as bail, it can be deposited in the Court's consignment account. As long as the amount set in the judicial resolution is not deposited, (usually a judicial order), provisional release cannot be accessed. The term to pay coincides with the time that this resolution remains in force. Sufficient and reasonable time to collect the amount of said deposit. 

How is the value of a bond calculated?

The amount of the bond is set by the investigating judge based on the greater or lesser seriousness of the facts being investigated. Normally, in matters related to drug trafficking, the amounts set for bail are usually high. 

What happens when a bond is paid?

From the moment a bail is paid, and this fact is brought to the attention of the investigating judge, he will issue the appropriate letters to the penitentiary center so that the inmate is immediately released. 

How does the payment of a bond work?

The payment of a bail is the release mechanism of a person who is in provisional prison for the commission of a crime. It acts as a legal spring that causes the release. It is a guarantee, of an economic nature, that the inmate or rather his family makes available to the Judge, to guarantee his judicial disposition.
